Simple Bench Press Tips

What do I do to get my bench stronger?

Bench more often
Get bigger and stronger all over, even your legs.
Drive with your feet
Tuck your elbows in
Bring the bar down faster
Get BIGGER and STRONGER all over
Dont let your spotter touch the bar and say, "ALL YOU!"
Use % training similar to Sheiko to modulate volume.
Bring the bar down to your highest point.
Keep shoulders down
Drive into the bench, don't reach for the sky
Hold your breath
Keep your ass down

Start with these. If you wanna get better with a BARBELL, use a barbell predominantly.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
